The Police Command in Kwara has pledged to work more closely with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to tackle illegal mining activities in the state.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Paul Odama made the pledge when he paid a courtesy visit to the EFCC Zonal Command on Friday in Ilorin.
Odama said that the collaboration was necessary to decisively deal with all economic saboteurs in the state.
The commissioner of police, who recently assumed duty, commended the bold steps being taken by the EFCC to curb illegal mining activities in Kwara.
He said that the visit was to strengthen existing collaboration between the Police and EFCC particularly in the area of fighting economic and financial crimes.
In his response, the EFCC Zonal Commander, Michael Nzekwe, appreciated the police commissioner for the visit and the police command’s support and contributions to EFCC’s operations.
Nzekwe described the police as a pillar of support to the commission, adding that enhanced collaboration between the two organisations would help to curb economic and financial crimes.
